Well I succumbed and ordered a Moby and guess what... he loves it!! Everyday I've been struggling to get things done around here... swing, bouncy chair, soothers dipped in gripe water to no avail. The Moby came this morning and I put him in and he was quiet for half an hour and then fell asleep! I was able to get sooooo much done and my hands are free and it doesn't stick out far... I was even able to chop veggies for a salad.
I have a baby bjorn which I hate, it's uncomfortable and sticks out so far that I can't see much. I also find I can't carry him on my own since he smells me as his food source but the bundling tight seemed to be the trick. He's been in it for a couple hours now.... life is good and the possibilities of getting things ACCOMPLISHED is endless :):) I think we definately (as North Americans) can learn quite a bit from moms around the world that carry their babies this way... now if I can figure out this elimination training thing haha (kinda hard living in Canada where they are bundled in so many clothes!)
I can actually even change Clara's diaper without having to lay him down to cry somewhere!
